* In conjunction with the Travel Kids Club
Lately it feels like my Miss 10 has been growing up, and quickly! She’s becoming much more aware of the world around her.
A couple of weeks ago, she mentioned how she was joining a bunch of students at her school to raise awareness of animals facing extinction across the world and run a fundraiser to give money to a charity that helps with this.
Definitely a proud mum moment!
I also think that it’s important for my children to understand that there are many people in the world who are not as fortunate as them. It is easy for children (hey, even adults!) to take our life for granted.
Recently, I became aware of the Travel Kids Club that aims to give gives kids, aged six to 11 years, the confidence to make a difference.
It sounds like a great initiative through which children receive a monthly package including a 30-page letter, stickers, posters, colouring, competitions, crafty activities and more!
Children learn about how children in other countries live, what food they eat, history, geography, new cultures, animals as well as the social and environmental issues they face.
They also get a chance each month to choose between two age appropriate causes to support with their membership. In following months, they get reports on how their choices had an impact, which is a great way of showing them how small actions can make a difference.
The Travel Kids Club aims to inspire a new generation of children who believe in their ability to create change and impact the world, while also fostering compassion and embracing differences about the world we live in.
The program is created by Serena Star-Leonard, originally from New Zealand, and her husband John Leonard, who have been travelling the world for the past three-and-a-half years filming inspiring people. Their work has allowed them to meet people in slums, brothels, prisons, conservation projects, development projects, orphanages, charities and rights organisations across the world. You can find out more and view some of their work over at Five Point Five.
I first became aware of Serena’s work about 18 months ago after reading two of her motivational books following my decision to leave behind my public relations career to spend more time with my family. How to Succeed in 12 months and How to Retire in 12 months are both based on the idea of creating a life you love and are great reads.
Monthly, three-monthly and six-monthly Travel Kids Club memberships are now available, with the first round of packages expected to be sent out in January 2016.
